If you are a "people watcher," this is as good a place to sit as can be found. There are people sitting on the railings, leaning, strolling, relaxing and enjoying.

This is the same building that is listed under Bamberg Rathaus! It's definitely worth a visit. Look for the leg of the cherub coming out of the back side of the building!

Situated just across the bridge. We stood to admire the wonderful architecture and the frescos. So impressive. Then we took photographs, trying to take a photo of the hall that had appeared as the front page of the free Bamberg city map. This place is indeed truly a world heritage site.

The Old Town Hall in Bamberg is quite a curiosity: The frescoes that adorn the facades are as amazing. Beautiful architecture!

This building is a highlight of a visit to the town - very striking with the 3D sculpture effect. It is a great welcome into the old town, and sets the atmosphere for the medieval German town. Sadly you cannot go in, but well worth a visit for the sight.

The Altes Rathaus stands like a sentinel guarding one of the main approaches to the old town. Beautifully painted walls.

Lovely building in unusual location- straddling the bridge over the river. Beautiful frescoes on either side well worth walking down to see

We liked that old but nicely renovated old building located at the bridge crossing over Linker Regnitzarm Chanel.
